Summer is almost here!! Oh well, it should be here except where we are, as the temperature keeps dropping down instead of going up. It started to get to me, I mean I was born in a country were the sun shines even when it is cold and winter. So what's better than cooking a nice summery dish to uplift ones spirit? This salmon dish was lovely and the pesto so refreshing. It was the first time Gloria was going to try salmon, so I made sure it was luscious enough to get her little taste buds tingle..and it worked! She liked it! We enjoyed it with a nice salad and some bread. It didn't make the sun shine and come out, but it definitely made us feel warm, happy and satisfied.
Summery Salmon with Coriander pesto
makes: 2-4 salmon fillets (depending from size)
1 clove garlic
1 cup coriander
2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
2 tbsp. lime juice
2 tomatoes, seeded and chopped
salt to taste
Preheat oven to 180.
In a food processor or blender add the garlic (slightly chopped), coriander olive oil, lime juice and salt (just a pinch to start with). Blend for few minutes until you have a creamy pesto (taste it and add more salt if needed).
Put some tin foil on a baking dish and place salmon fillets. Spread the cilantro pesto on salmon fillet and top with the chopped tomatoes. Bake for about 15 minutes.
